Ohhh… Alright… Cha-Ching at Christie’s

11.11.10 Marina Galperina

Jeff Koons’s metallic hemorrhoid and Andy Warhol’s soup porn sold big at Christie’s auctions Pop Art garage sale this week, which raked in loot totaling $273 million. The biggest banked item? A ’64 Roy Lichtenstein Ohhh … Alright … that sold for $42.6 million. As in, ohhh, alright, I give up. Gerhard Richter’s candle pair painting was beautiful, though not unique. Still, I’m glad my massive yawn-induced eye roll landed on its calming fuzzy flames.
